By Emily Marchant
I would rather be anything than a Millennial
there is a God, I know this
a higher power exists. One with a sense of humor
I am living proof— I am the evidence of the almighty
My days are wasted pining and yearning
“You Can’t Always Get What You Want” is the only song on the radio
the DJ is slyly winking electromagnetically
God just laughs
Generation Y is the lost generation
it’s in the name— Generation Why?
our purpose is drowned in debt, poverty and war
the joke has transformed into complex performance art
As I continue to crave the unattainable
an amusing thought crosses me
perhaps this is no elaborate joke orchestrated from above. There is no audience
this is actually my life.
I laugh harder than I’ve ever laughed before.
